Greetings from Santa, Gift Certificates and more

WCMD Swap Card Created by Kathy Bohan

I love the Detailed Santa Thinlits Dies and coordinating Greetings from Santa Stamp Set. Santa’s list made me think about shopping for gifts and the fact that Christmas is just 1 month from today! Thoughts of traffic jams and long lines do not appeal to me… I prefer to do most of my shopping from home. I can help make your holiday shopping easy and stress free. gift-certificate

Are you looking for the perfect gift to give to someone who loves to stamp?

Or better yet, suggest a Stampin’ Up! gift certificate to your friends, family, spouse or significant other.  They can give YOU something you’re guaranteed to love this coming holiday season or on your next birthday or any occasion.

I offer Stampin’ Up! gift certificates which include a card I specially design for the recipient.

To get started, email me ( the following:

  • Your name and contact information.
  • Recipient’s name and address (or I can send the hand made card directly to you).
  • Special colors, theme (for example, birthday, Christmas) or other details.
  • Short message (optional)
  • How you would like it signed
  • Where would you like the certificate sent?  (I cover the postage expense for hand made cards.)

*Gift certificates must be redeemed through me.  Recipients must live in the U.S.

Once I receive the above information, I’ll send you an invoice for secure on-line payment by PayPal.  I will work on the custom card and gift certificate as soon as I receive payment.

I also offer FREE gift wrapping and a handmade card for any gift purchase through me. Or, if you prefer to make a card yourself, I will send you a card kit you can make to go with your gift.  I am here to make your holiday shopping and gift giving easy and stress free!

G is for Gift Giving

Welcome to my ABC’s of Stampin’ series. Today we’re getting geared up for the holidays. When it comes to Gift Giving, Stampin’ Up! has got you covered!  From ready to go gift boxes and bags to making special custom gift holders you can find it all right here!  And I will show you how!

These 3 x 3 x 3 White Gift Boxes are in the Holiday catalog and come with acetate sleeves. They are food safe which makes them great for some yummy cookies to give to friends or neighbors.  They are also big enough for a beautiful holiday candle for that special hostess.

With the right tools, you can make your own gorgeous gift boxes for different sized gifts. Here’s one I made with cardstock and Designer Series Paper using my Personal Trimmer.


I have a GREAT video from Stampin’ Up! to share with you to show how to make your own gift boxes like I did above.  I learned some great tips (Do you know how much is a smidge?  LOL)!!!  It’s a bit longer than usual but well worth watching!  FYI…You can just watch the first 9 minutes to see how I made my gift box. It is so so easy to do!!! (Of course, I won’t tell if you don’t!!)


You can also add a fun element to gift packaging using the Gift Box Punch Board. You can create containers just right for that special gift.  Use with cardstock or Designer Series Paper to create boxes up to 4″ on each side. (Sizing chart printed on board.)  Check out this video.


Instead of buying bags for small treats and gifts, create them in a variety of sizes using the cardstock and Designer Series Paper of your choice.  You can make bags 2″ deep, up to 3 5/8″ wide, from 4″ to 10″ tall using the Gift Bag Punch Board. Check out this video to see how it works!

Another option to help you with your gift wrapping is the Perfectly Wrapped Project kit.  I recently held a class using this kit and the ladies LOVED their projects.


With the holiday season coming up you are going to want to get a head start on your gifts. Shop HERE to purchase one of these amazing tools today and get busy creating gifts from the heart! As a special thank you for purchasing from me today, I am offering a Back to School Special…With the purchase of any of the gift making tools featured (Gift Box Punch Board, Gift Bag Punch Board, Personal Trimmer, or Perfectly Wrapped Project Kit) I will send you a set of handmade tags.  You can use them as samples to make your own tags or put them on your gifts ready to go!  In addition, with a purchase of $50 or more (before tax & shipping) I will send you 10 sheets of 12 x 12 card stock to get your gift making started! You can also purchase Gift Certificates through me and make gift giving simple and great!

What’s on your wish list?  Email me your wish list along with names and email (or phone #) of who you would like me to share your wish list with and I will put on my crafty elf hat and be Santa’s helper. (See I really have a crafty elf hat…a gift from one of my students. 🙂


I will send you a little gift just for sending me your wish list!  Email me:

Have a GREAT day!
